The Fugitives at Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall

Folk-roots and Americana from all-star Vancouver collective

Songwriters Adrian Glynn and Brendan McLeod, joined by banjo player Chris Suen (Viper Central) and violinist Carly Frey (The Coal Porters), create a sound that’s a beguiling bedrock of traditional roots and Americana with lyrics that are unafraid to tackle the biggest issues of today.
From Vancouver, a folk-roots collective with a reputation for their scintillating live shows. “They bring enough energy to the stage to light up a small city… writes their home-town paper “the quartet conjures up a sound that’s like the missing link between Leonard Cohen and the Pogues".


Songwriters Adrian Glynn and Brendan McLeod, joined by banjo player Chris Suen (Viper Central) and violinist Carly Frey (The Coal Porters), create a sound that’s a beguiling bedrock of traditional roots and Americana with lyrics that are unafraid to tackle the biggest issues of today. Nowhere more so than in their latest album No Help Coming. A quirky, compelling collection of songs about the complexities of the everyday – of families, partners and friendships – it is set against the ever-present clarion call of climate change “There’s still a tendency to create in a vacuum,” they say, “to write a love song as if our province wasn’t engulfed in smoke”.

Their previous album Trench Songs was nominated for a prestigious JUNO Award for Traditional Roots Album of the Year and they’ve spread their alluring blend of complex harmonies, captivating story-telling and top-notch musicianship across the globe, from Western Europe to North America’s West Coast, British Columbia to Britain.
Catch them on their only East Anglian date on an extensive UK tour.
